New 10-Speed Transmission Improves F-150 Fuel Economy

 

For the past few years, Ford has continued to improve the fuel efficiency and performance of the F-150 with the use of new technologies. First was the EcoBoost V6 engine, then a military-grade lightweight aluminum body and now the first ever volume-production 10-speed automatic transmission.

When paired with the new second-generation 3.5-liter EcoBoost V6 engine, the 10-speed transmission helps improve fuel economy estimates by 1 mpg in city, highway and combined ratings for two-wheel drive models, and 2 mpg combined for 4×4 models.

In addition to improved fuel economy, the 10-speed transmission enables better performance and increased towing and hauling control. The increased power and torque of the EcoBoost V6 and more gear selections allow for better low-end and peak performance, which helps when hauling heavy payloads and towing heavy trailers.

The new 10-speed transmission uses smarter shift logic to give drivers more confidence in any situation. An all-new adaptive shift-scheduling algorithm monitors more than a dozen powertrain and driver control signals in real time to ensure the right gear is selected at the right time for a more engaging driving experience.

A unique high-speed one-way clutch allows for non-sequential shifting, and the integrated torque converter/turbine clutch saves weight and reduces the overall size of the transmission. This is also the first gearbox from Ford that does not use cast-iron components, instead relying on advanced materials and alloys for strength and weight savings.

With around 60 percent of F-150 buyers opting for EcoBoost engines, it is clear that these powertrains perform well in the real world. This year over 1-million F-150 owners will save 110 million gallons of gas thanks to the fuel-saving technology used in their EcoBoost-equipped trucks.
